memory from this year for you? there's so many. give me the best one. >> man, that's tough. i think my best memory is just the run on the second game and getting into the postseason. not a group of individuals can't do it, a group of talented individuals can't do it, it took a team to make that run, to make that push. if you get in the postseason, it took a team to do that, just part of a real team, it's a great feeling. it makes me happenr happy. >> it's going to be you and rg3 for a long time in washington. have you talked to your quarterback? >> yes, he's in my hometown pensacola, and i'm doing some work over there with api right now while i'm in town. i go in and stop before i work out, shoot the breeze with him, go check on him, seeing him trying to push the limits. >> he's already trying to push the limits? >> he's done it after he came out of surgery. he's doing great. i asked him before i leave, him
6:51 pm
and his mom are all over there. he's doing great. he just wants to get back. i have no doubt he'll by back on the field. >> so already walking around and everything. >> yeah. i don't know what's better, the information on rg3 or alfred morris' laugh. i can't even duplicate it. what do you think, vance? >> you know what? any laugh has to compare poorly to joe gibbs' giggle. that's the standard for me is joe gibbs' giggle. >> reporter: you guys are absolutely right. that's a good segue. we'll catch up with joe gibbs and doug williams here at the super bowl tomorrow. let's turn or attention to golf. i promised yesterday i wouldn't talk about deer antiher spray again. unfortunately i lied. we have to talk about it for a minute. vijay singh has been taking deantler spray to help him heal from -- so he turned himself in,
6:52 pm
had no idea it contained a performance-enhancing drug. he withdrew from the phoenix open with a sore back. at the phoenix open, the biggest story was phil mickelson going low, and i mean very low in scottsdale. mickelson, unbelievable start at this golf tournament. he would start on the back nine, from beyond the cactus, his tee shot on the par 3 12th, from 205 yards away, a couple friendly bounces, pulls it right up next to the jar. that sets up a birdie. four straight to start the round for lefty. then on 14, to save par, check out how lucky he is here. a little ring around the rosy, then it drops in, a career low 29 on the opening holes. then after a par on number 8 action that takes 58 out of the equation. he needs a birdie to shoot a 59. from 25 feet away, looks good, but oh, man, it just limps out.
6:53 pm
check out the reaction. can't believe it. the 60, not too shabby, though. that score ties a caps course record, hess career best. he holds a four-shot lead in that tournament. guys, keeping busy here. catching up with joe gibbs and doug williams tomorrow. >> we're looking forward to it. thank you, dan. coming up next, riding a record-breaking wave.

one more check on doug's forecast. now snow in the morning? >> we've been talking about this the last 24 hoyer. it looks like we could get more, and by more we're talking half an inch in some places, but the timing is during the rush hour.
6:57 pm
i wouldn't be surprised if you woke up and gnaw snow. it won't be everywhere, but some areas could pick up a quick half inch. 35 degrees for a high tomorrow. that snow will move out very fast. most of the day sunshine, another chance for snow shower on sunday, then a better chance the light snow i think on tuesday. not a lot in any of those storms, but once again, temperatures way down, too. thanks, doug. a surfer out in hawaii said -- well, actually he's from hawaii, but he says he rode a 100-foot wave to break his own record. guy is garrett mcnamara. he's 45 years old. he's professional big wave surfer, known as an extreme water man. this is not the wave we're talking about, but similar. he gets towed out on a jet ski to waves that surfers would not normally be able to reach by
6:58 pm
paddle. he broke the port in portugal. he was surfing in the same place on monday when he rode that 100-foot monster. >> my goodness.
